Toys

Citing growing competition in the toy business, Toys "R" Us announced yesterday that they might stop selling...toys!! That means no more Geoffrey Giraffe or Toys "R" Us in Times Square.

Analysts report that much of their business comes during the holiday season (does it really take analysts to realize that?), so the announcement was not a final decision, but a potential shift in their business.

If Toys "R" Us stops selling toys, what will become of their jingle which we found on In the 80s.

I don't want to grow up, I'm a Toys' R Us kid, there's a million toys at Toys 'R Us that I can play with! More bikes, more trains, more video games, it's the biggest toy store there is! I don't want to grow, because then if I did, I wouldn't be a Toys 'R Us kid!"

Sure, Toys "R" Us in Times Square might be a tourist trap, but Gothamist still wants to go. It's got a Ferris Wheel inside for Pete's sake! That's like having a roller coaster in a mall. For now, we'll just live through Rachelle's photos.
